The order of the top three spots in the overall standings continue to yo-yo back and forth every week between the same three experts. Once again this week we have a new leader, DailyRoto, who had a strong week to propel them back into the top spot. We also see FakePigskin break through to move into second place in the overall standings thanks to a big day on Monday.

In this article, I will give a brief recap of each day we gathered and graded the experts, including how the Industry Consensus picks did, highlighting which experts were at the top for the day and which players were only called out by one or two experts, but produced an “A+” grade. I will also review the overall standings, highlighting the top experts so far this season. You can view the full NBA Overall Standings here.

As a reminder, we are currently gathering selections and publishing the NBA Industry Consensus articles each Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday during the NBA season, so be sure to check back about an hour or so before the first game tips off to get a look at the consensus picks for the day.

On to the grades!
